The City of Philadelphia announced the final round of the Anti-Violence Community Expansion Grant Program awardees and the list is Educators 4 Education (E4E). They will be focused on supporting Southwest Philadelphia.
To achieve and sustain a reduction in gun violence and improve the quality of life in communities most affected by gun violence, the City is investing in organizations with proven track records of delivering quality anti-violence interventions to help them expand and strengthen their efforts. A key step in this effort is the Anti-Violence Community Expansion Grants.
The E4E Keys to Success Program will offer intense mentoring and case management services focusing on prevention and early intervention supportive services in a community-based setting. The program provides participants a robust opportunity to gain valuable life skills, conflict resolution, mediation, and positive decision-making skills with a focus on academic achievement, career and workforce development through activities, workshops, and field trips.
Founding president and CEO of E4E, Anthony Singleton, states “This funding will allow us to provide 50 high-risk males between the ages of 16-34 years old with individualized mentoring, care management services and employment placement under E4E’s Keys to Success Program. The Keys to Success Program closely resembles a concentration in the City’s Safe Havens and Mentorship model. These services will be focused in neighborhoods in the Southwest sections of the city.”
